Gluten-Free Dinner Recipes
TASTEAs anyone with a wheat allergy or gluten intolerence will tell you, trying to create nutritious meals without gluten can be tough -- traditional easy dishes like pasta and sandwiches are out unless you make them with gluten-free alternatives. That said, cooking at home means you have control over what goes into your dinner (so you can avoid the gluten that often hides in restaurant and packaged food). With these gluten-free recipes below, doing without wheat can be surprisingly easy -- and delicious.

Polenta Pizzas with Mozzarella, Baby Tomatoes and Arugula (pictured): Polenta, which is made from corn, serves as the crust for this gluten-free pizza.
Santa Fe Quinoa Salad: Cumin, fresh lime juice, cilantro and cocktail onions all perk up this vegan black bean and quinoa salad.
Roasted Cauliflower and Chicken Paillard with Caper Vinaigrette: Capers, fresh herbs and lemon juice season mild roasted cauliflower and chicken (and the caulflower and chicken are cooked in the same pan, so cooking and clean-up are easy).
